Rep. Kawasaki’s Newsletter: Fiscal Plan Rollout, Survivor Benefits, Wrongful Convictions

Last week was a big week in Juneau: two bills central to the Alaska House Majority Coalition’s fiscal policy platform were introduced, my Pre-Kindergarten bill was heard the first time and I added an amendment to Survivor Benefits legislation to include coverage for families of fallen correctional officers, probation officers and others that were originally included in last year’s bill I supported.

Rep. Kawasaki’s Newsletter: Survivor Benefits Public Testimony, Pre-K and the Budget

I hope the beginning of 2017 is treating you and your family well as the 30th Alaska Legislature moves into its third week of session. My colleagues and I on the House Finance Committee are in full swing as each department provides overviews to the committee and subcommittees on their budget. We are focusing on whether a program in a department meets their mission and will consider elimination, modifications or enhancements to ensure the departments are meeting those missions. The House Majority Coalition does not encourage a cuts-only approach, but we recognize there are efficiencies in the way our government is structured.

As introduced by the Governor, the bill was originally an aggressive reform to scale back costly subsidies by $500 million. The bill was dramatically changed through the Republican-controlled committee process to strip away nearly all savings and continue the unsustainable oil industry subsidies.
